Where Are They Now Wednesday

WATNW- Kim Zolciak-Biermann

With the new season of Don’t Be Tardy airing last night, of course I have to check in on Ms. Kim ZB for the first installment of “Where Are They Now Wednesday”! Kim Zolciak Biermann went from Real Housewife of Atlanta cast member to the star of her own reality show back in 2012, and personally, I am so happy that happend. She’s beauty, she’s grace and her wig is always in place.

We have got to applaud Kim for being one of the original Real Housewives of Atlanta, where she stuck with the group for five season, later appearing in seasons nine and ten. Iconic moments of hers include: the infamous “Big Poppa”, the multiple hit singles that are still bops today, and her red solo cups.

Now, to be KIM-pletely honest, I love her way more now on Don’t Be Tardy than I ever did on RHOA. The drama of having an excessive amount of children, a hubby that still has yet to be signed to an NFL team, and a lesbian chef is the type of drama I never want in my life. If she’s not stressing about the twins starting their first day of school, she’s stressing about 23-year-old Brielle who half lives in a downtown ATL apartment and half lives at home. I think the only sane member of the Biermann family the dog (but, like, the one who didn’t bite their toddler son).

Kim seems to be thriving. If she’s not promoting teeth-whitening kits on her Snapchat and Instagram, she is busy commenting on her children’s social media posts and posting pictures of her and Kroy giving serious PDA on all of her social medias.

Let’s raise our chardonnay-filled solo cups to this week’s former housewife. All the best to Kim, Kroy and their plethora of children. Mazel!


Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Secrets Revealed

Oh yes, it’s that sweet time of year when we get a “Secrets Revealed” episode, or as Kyle Richards calls it, “The Sh*t You Thought You Got Away With”. Dorit and her Gucci ice cubes, Garcelle wraps up her first season, Denise gets tongue tied and Erika bonds with her new friend, Sutton, over being southern.
First things first: we have to applaud Garcelle for successfully finishing the season with these crazy white women. Personally, I think Garcelle is an amazing addition to the show. She seems to simmer down the other women in the times things get a little heated and I live for it.
Of course, I cannot talk about RHOBH: Secrets Revealed without mentioning Bravo, Bravo, F*cking Bravo. As explained by Kyle, the saying “Bravo, Bravo, Bravo” was a lighthearted way the women would tell the network they were still touching up hair and makeup between replacing camera batteries. Apparently, Ms. Richards didn’t get the memo. How could she think that the network would just cut out an entire dinner table fight because of one saying? Unfortunately, Bravo had other plans for Denise and aired it anyway. And poor Lois in the background of the fight. Lois is too much of a goddess to sit with these women and hear them fight over Dorit’s glam agenda.
The last thing I have to bring up is: Sutton is fun? As we saw in Secrets Revealed, Sutton turned 48, but it seemed like her liver just turned 21. In all honesty, I am not a huge fan of hers, but she did make the show a little extra fun to watch with her little southern way of living. I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of her in Season 11.
So let’s raise a glass of Reposado to honor Denise in her quest to fix her very public downfall and to Garcelle for completing her first season as an official housewife of Beverly Hills!


Welcome to RealiTea!

From sea to shining sea. From Morgan to Maloof to the Morally Corrupt Faye Resnick. RealiTea is a blog dedicated to everything Real Housewives! Every franchise, every wife, every week. You can expect updates on ex-housewives every Wednesday for a segment I’m calling: “Where Are They Now Wednesday’s” plus recaps of newly aired episodes, older episodes, and even spin-offs like Don’t Be Tardy! All posts are my opinions, all comments and feedback are totally welcome!

I got super into The Real Housewives during quarantine, there was only so many Keeping Up with The Kardashian episodes I could watch before I needed a little more drama in my life and the women of the show certainly brought the drama I was searching for! Now that we are (barely) back to live as it was, I still cannot get enough of these women. 

Some may think the show is just women being dramatic and backstabbing each other, but what they don’t realize is that they are actual businesswomen. From the Skinny Girl brand to Ramona Wines and the countless clothing lines they have been able to create. These women are not only entertaining but are pretty inspiring.

Starting next week, I will be recapping a bunch of episodes and letting you know what I think. Keep an eye out for my next post, where I will be going over all three installments of the Beverly Hills reunion. Season 10 of RHOBH was a season to remember, I’m sure we can all agree on that and I will certainly get into that in my next post!

Grab some Grigio, tune in, and keep a lookout for my next post. It is always Turtle Time at RealiTea with Ali B.
